Do you suffer from skin irritation, asthma or another health concern? Do you find that some popular cosmetic brands just make your issues worse? I found this out the hard way. I have asthma and suddenly developed eczema. My skin was in bad shape and I found that the products I regularly used on my body not only caused skin irritation but also caused my asthma to kick into high gear. Recently, I began using the Lavender Miracle Balm from Makes3Organics and I am in love. In this article I will give you three reasons why Makes3Organics products will now be a staple in my household.
Makes3Organics is Family Owned
Reading how Dan and Kristine Sperling, the founders of Makes3Organics came up with the idea to start their own company resonated with me. Their daughter Alice, has asthma, eczema as well as food and environmental allergies. In their quest to find products for their daughter that would help not harm her, they found that they were spending considerable time and expense to find the safest and most effective products. Finally deciding they too wanted to use safer products, they made it a goal to create body and personal care products the entire family can use.
I love supporting family owned businesses because in my opinion I feel that they put more care into their products. In the case of Makes3Organics they use only the purest of ingredients that smell wonderful and are great for your skin. I had an Oprah aha moment with the Lavender Balm which I will discuss later.
Makes3Organics are Free of Harmful Ingredients
I don’t know about you, but half of the beauty products I own, I can’t even pronounce most of the ingredients. But after doing some research I found that certain ingredients can cause cancer or other scary side effects. This wonderful company promises to always be free of:
- Petroleum Byproducts
- Sodium Laureth Sulfates and Sodium Lauryl Sulfates
- Cocamide DEA
- Benzene and its derivatives
- Formaldehyde Releasing Preservatives
- Triclosan and Triclocarban
- Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs)
- Gluten, Wheat and Whey
Just to give you a little background on why these ingredients are bad for you. Just one of the ingredients Parabens, while not scientifically proven, could possibly have harmful effects on your body. According to StyleCaster.com “Studies have shown that some parabens can mimic the activity of the hormone estrogen in the body’s cells, and while estrogenic activity is associated with certain forms of breast cancer, parabens have been found present in breast tumors.”
Scary right?! Why not take the better safe than sorry approach and put more thought into what you and your family put on your body? I know that this is my goal for the year, slowly replacing harmful beauty products with safer ones to cut down on my skin irritation and other harmful side effects.
The Makes3Organics Lavender Balm Helped my Eczema
I had eczema spots on my hands that were embarrassing for me. Nothing I used would make the spots go away. However, I am happy to say that after using the Makes3Organics Lavender Balm (retail $9.99), my eczema spots slowly went away. It has been two weeks and the spots have not reappeared. Made with such ingredients as;
- Organic virgin coconut oil
- Organic shea butter
- Organic jojoba oil
- Organic Aloe Vera
The Lavender Miracle Balm is rich in vitamins A, E & F. Helping to balance the skin, promote cell rejuvenation, increase circulation, and accelerate wound healing. Great for those with dry skin and eczema. I am happy with the Lavender Balm and plan on purchasing more products from this wonderful company as soon as possible.
If you are concerned with the harmful ingredients in the products you and your family use, why not support a family owned business, that makes it their goal to not include harmful ingredients in their products. Always organic and filled with easy to read ingredients, Makes3Organics is the go to place for good for you products.
